Medication Safety Issues

International issues:

Amaryl M may be confused with Amaryl brand name for glimepiride [multiple international markets], Amarel brand for glimepiride [France].

High alert medication:

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) includes glimepiride among its list of drugs which have a heightened risk of causing significant patient harm when used in error.

Geriatric Patients: High-Risk Medication:

Beers Criteria: Glimepiride is identified in the Beers Criteria as a potentially inappropriate medication to be avoided in patients ≥65 years (independent of diagnosis or condition) due to higher risk of severe prolonged hypoglycemia in older adults (Beers Criteria [AGS 2019]).
